Medium: pottery, ceramics and paper clay
Background: I was introduced to pottery and ceramics in Iran about 20 years ago.
How long have you been a sculptor? 20 years
Why did you start sculpting? Since 2011 I started working with paper clay sculptures at Dempsey Community Center where my teacher Maria Mask encouraged me to continue my passion and find my style.
What inspires you? Working with clay lets me explore the complexity of simple matters (phenomena) and duality of the same subjects; in some of my works I can feel unity in duality. I have also realized that we are all connected although it may appear that we are not; if we looked long at humans and nature we can see more similarities than differences. Further, I believe there exists a connection with all things in the universe.
Which sculptures will you be exhibiting at Dimensions 2013? Two sculptures in paper clay and oil patina will be shown at this exhibition.
